Phiaton, makers of top of the line wired and wireless headphones, have the PS 210 BTNC Bluetooth 3.0 noise reduction headphones. These headphones not only offer great sound quality, but give you active noise cancelling that can be used on its own, as well as in combination with what ever audio source you may be using.

Phiaton has won multiple awards for their headphones such as 2012 Digital Trends Editors Choice Award, and The Best Of 2011. They have multiple lines of headphones from over-the-ear wired headphones to Bluetooth 3.0 Sound Cancelling ones such as the set we are reviewing today.

The PS 210 BTNC come packaged in a nice box and are packaged well. Included in the box are The headphones, protective carrying bag, USB charging cable, audio cable, four different sized silicone ear buds, and set of memory foam ear buds, registration card, and a carrying strap.

Fitment of the headphones is spot on with the different ear buds that are provided. Once you get the proper fit you will be pleasantly surprised with how comfortable they are.

The BTNC headphones use a standard microUSB charger and can be charged on anything from your computer, to a phone charger, to you cigarette lighter charger. This means you can have a fully charged set of bluetooth headphones no matter where you are.

What happens if you do run out of power for your bluetooth headphones? If you had any other set of headphones you would become severely depressed since you couldn’t listen to your music in peace anymore. Not so with your Phiaton PS 210 BTNC headphones. They have included an audio cable that plugs into both your audio device and the headphones to give you a wired option in the same package.

The controls for the PS 210 BTNC headphones are very easy to use and wide-ranging. On the side you have two sliders. The first if for the noise cancelling. This is either on or off. You can use the noise cancelling separate from listening to music for any instant you just want to remove the background noise. The second is the power button for turning the bluetooth headphones on and off. There is the main button for answering and hanging up phone calls. The toggle button lets you control volume up and down, track skip forward and back, and also fast forward and reverse. All actions are confirmed with an audible alert letting you know if you are in pairing mode, noise cancelling mode, power on or off and so on. On the control is the microphone for clear phone calls without having to take off your headphones. The inline controls have a plastic spring loaded clip to secure the controls for ease of use.

The speakers are made of 14.3 mm drivers with a range of 15 Hz ~ 25,000 Hz. They operate with the bluetooth 3.0 standard for great battery life and a greater frequency range than bluetooth 2.1. Battery life is good for 12 hours talk time and 14 hours music listening time. You can look at getting roughly 600 hours. Using noise cancelling will affect these numbers.

The Phiaton PS 210 BTNC headphones are a quality product that gives you not only a comfortable fit for hours of use but also sound quality that will make you want to listen for hours. There is a great audio range with clean bass tones and crisp high notes. The noise cancelling feature works wonders and gets rid of all those pesky background noises quite well for such a small package. Battery life is great and can get you though a whole day of lawn mowing, working around the house, or just wanting to ignore that significant other.

Price is $115.00 on Amazon.com and can also be purchased at select other retailers HERE. There is also a one year limited warranty from the date of purchase.
